California-based ITN, Inc. says it sold three new Chem-Dry franchises in Shenzhen, Changchun, and Changsha, respectively, in January.
The total number of Chem-Dry franchises in China has now risen to 15.
ITN says the growing demand for Chem-Dry franchises is an indication of Chem-Dry's reputation in China, as well as a sign of changing times.
"Chem-Dry's increasing brand recognition will have a snowball effect on its growth," said Riaz Peter, General Manager of Chem-Dry China. "With the advent of the Beijing Olympics the services provided by Chem-Dry franchises will be in great demand."
Developed in the United States, the Chem-Dry brand has become a dominant force in the carpet cleaning industry with over 3,800 franchises in 50 countries. Chem-Dry's success is built on its proprietary Hot Carbonation cleaning system combined with equipment manufactured in the United States for exclusive use of Chem-Dry franchises.
Chem-Dry China imports proprietary chemicals from the US on an on-going basis.
